Electric Fencing

Electric fencing is a type of fencing that serves as a barrier, keeping animals within a confined space by using electric shock. It is also used to protect security sensitive areas, like prisons and military bases. The voltage of electric fencing can range from shock, to injury (with some being lethal) – depending on the purpose it serves. The most common types are non-lethal fence, stun-lethal fence and lethal fence. In each case, the electric fencing is designed to release the electrical current only when touched by a person or an animal. Electric fencing is used as a form of animal control, particularly in agricultural and farming industry. They are widely considered safer than other alternatives, such as barbed wire, which can injure animals.
